Two announcements from the Mourne Mountain Marathon Committee:
Come and test your navigation and endurance skills every September, in the Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland. A competitive event for teams of two, who can enter one of four categories, covering between 35km and 55km over two days. There is also a one day score class. Camp overnight and be self-sufficient. Walkers to elite runners.
For the Elite, B, C & D classes, the fastest team around a set number of control markers over the 2 days wins. For the score, the team that collects the most points in six hours wins.
The distance vs. ascent ratio are guidelines and will vary depending on terrain, weather, competitor experience and level of fitness.
